Standart: The Collected Drawings of Antonio Mak Hin-yeung


Sold Out


One of Hong Kong’s most vital artists, Antonio Mak Hin-yeung (1951-1994) left behind a rich body of sculptural work, as well as an extensive archive of drawings, preparatory sketches, and hand-written notes. Despite his artistic achievements and influence on generations of Hong Kong artists, little has been written about Mak. Standart: The Collected Drawings of Antonio Mak Hin-yeung features more than 500 drawings, collages, and notes by the artist from the 1960s to 1990s. This work is a comprehensive guide to Mak’s art and a window onto the ecology of contemporary Hong Kong art and culture. Personal and art historical essays by Valerie Doran, Eliza Lai, Leong Ka Tai, Neco Lo Che-ying, Christopher Mattison, and Blues Wong provide a critical apparatus for understanding the relationship between Mak, his drawings and the bronze sculptures that he was celebrated for during his life.
